If new furniture or a complete overhaul aren’t in your budget right now, make these quick and affordable fixes.
Print your own photos as wall art. Large artwork can create a focal point in any room that draws the eye away from your old furniture or fraying rug. But framed art and professional store-bought prints can be pricey, especially in larger sizes. Instead, choose your favorite nature or vacation photo and use a photo-printing site (such as York Photo, Shutterfly or Snapfish) to get it printed on gallery canvas or metal. These sites frequently offer discount codes for 50 percent off or more, meaning you can get a large print for less than $100.
Or print out a bunch of photos from one of these sites for mere cents, get frames at a dollar store and make a wall collage.
Paint your front door. If you can’t afford a fresh coat of paint in all the rooms that need it, tackle the entry door. Pick a bold color to give your home a refreshing change — and to hide all the dings and smudges.
Refresh your shower curtain. For an inexpensive and instant change, toss your old faded shower curtain for a new one.
Use the empty fireplace. You probably don’t use your fireplace for its intended purpose during the summer. So fill it with a cluster of variously sized candles, house plants, a candelabra or even brightly colored vases and jars.
Repurpose clutter for centerpieces. Don’t buy centerpieces for your kitchen or coffee table. Use what you have, especially items that never see the light of day in your cupboards. Bowls filled with fruit, a pitcher and a fancy China plate can work on your kitchen table. For living room tables, try stacks of books, candles and framed photos.
